Redolent of roses and ripe-for-the-picking strawberries, De Toren Délicate is an elegant red blend that combines red’s seductiveness with the undeniable drinkability of white. Medium bodied and immeasurably gentle, it offers up an abundance of juicy fruit and velvety, smooth tannins that lead to a sophisticated finish. Delicious on its own as an apéritif, it’s also the perfect consort to the lingering pleasures of Spanish tapas or a platter of the finest French charcuterie.
An innovative reimagining of red wine, the French-inspired De Toren Délicate is a fresh and light cépage that reveals its best assets when served slightly chilled. While it displays intense red undertones, this limited-production wine is soft and delicate on the palate, making it the perfect culinary consort, not to mention the reason a number of the world’s top dining establishments choose it specifically for their dedicated tasting menus.
Paired perfectly in Rotterdam at FG Foodlabs with a 5 year aged Iberican Ham. “The dish we pair with La Jeunesse Délicate at The Test Kitchen is called Hunter 's plate - its flash-cured Blesbok, springbok parfait, eland marrow and morels..” Wayve Kolevsohn, sommelier The Test Kitchen. Vineyard Hotel, Cape Town "The La Jeunesse Délicate was the real star of the lunch. They used white marshmallows infused with Thai curry spices with char sui chicken, shitake mushroom, tatsoi, noodles, tomato chutney. This pairing was out of this world!!” Albie Koch, Cellarmaster De Toren
